I have been feeding my new cat (Geovana) Friskies Wet Food. It is the same food they fed him at the shelter. Although it seems that after an hour most of the can's contents are still in the bowl. Should I leave it longer or is it normal?

I wouldn't leave out wet food for any longer than 20-30 minutes.

It appears Geovana doesn't like Friskies. I suggest trying something else.

Another thing you can do is after removing the food after 20-30 minutes, there's no more until next meal time. They tend to learn after that.

And yes, do try other flavours or brands, but stick to this rule.

Ok Thanks! I might ask the shelter what flavours they use.
